Gift Card Deals for Restaurants, iTunes and Shopping

Posted By Kate On December 3, 2013 @ 8:51 am In Holidays | 5 Comments

The holiday gift guide [1] series continues this week with gift card deals!

It’s time for the annual list of the best deals on restaurant and retail gift cards [2]. Buy cards to give as gifts or to lock in a discount on your favorite chain restaurants.

Use credit cards offering cash back [3] on restaurants (Upromise World MasterCard [4] offers 4% at participating restaurants) to increase your savings. And if you use your gift cards yourself, make sure to pair them with coupons for even MORE of a discount on your favorite meals!

Use your bonus cards as an extra inexpensive gift [5] for someone on your list, a coworker or teacher [6], a Secret Santa [7] gift or a special treat for yourself! Make sure to check the fine print on each offer – some restaurants limit the number of bonuses you can earn, and most bonus gift cards can be used for a limited time.
